Nick Bedford

Chief Financial Officer


Understanding the business from the ground up and not being afraid to challenge the status quo when needed – that’s how Nick Bedford takes on his role as Smith’s Chief Financial Officer.

“When something changes – whether it be tax law, interest rates, regulations – we should immediately have an opinion of what that means for our business and our bottom line,” Nick said.

All of this effort is dedicated to providing Smith’s global trading team the best possible support so that we give both our customers and suppliers a positive experience.

“My goal for the finance team is to be a seamless support function to ensure we are always proactively helping to drive the growth of the business,” Nick said. “It’s also crucial to do so while applying the necessary checks and balances to make sure the risks we take are worth the expected rewards.”

Outside of Smith, Nick – who is a native of England – enjoys following British sports teams but says he’s become knowledgeable in American sports since living in the States. He also enjoys spending time outdoors with his two young children.
